Kenya – KNCL trains youth in leadership development, decision making and problem solving skills. The project, funded with a $5000.00 grant from GPA, implemented a training program for youth in Charitable Children’s Institutions to empower them psychologically, emotionally and socially. Funding also set up a cyber-café to generate income allowing the program to sustain itself.
The overall goal of the project was achieved: the welfare of over 60 young people who lived or are living in Charitable Children’s Institutions (CCIs) was improved thanks to the different activities of the project. The following additional outcomes were also achieved:
60 members of the Kenya Network of Care Leavers were strengthened and trained on some specific life skills topics that helped them to face daily life social and emotional challenges
15 members visited 7 Charitable Children’s Institutions provided positive mentoring and skills training for vulnerable children and youth.
A cyber cafe was opened through GPA funding and expanded through additional funding and linkages from French Embassy in Kenya in 201
